Re: Modern metal scultures feedback
I am a sculptor.
I like the artist. His work is interesting. Metal (bronze) really should not be outside since it does oxidize. There are outdoor bronzes, but they need to be regularly taken care of -- so just keep that in mind. Also, you might risk having something like this stolen from your yard.
Metal brings a good price at a scrap yard and there are meth heads out there that would sell your 4000 dollar sculpture for 35 dollars in scrap just to get a hit. I believe there is some sort of form you have to sign to sell non-ferrous metals to scrap yards, but I don't know much about this.
A large sculpture needs a stand, and that is generally cemented to the landscape in some way with the sculpture bolted or welded into place. I personally think a walled garden is a perfect place for this kind of work.
I really like those gates as well.
I think getting a piece of art for your wife would be a spectacular birthday gift! I wish you well!
